Is The Samsung Gear VR Good For Watching Porn?

Before we go into detail as to how to watch porn using the Samsung Gear VR, we’re going first to explain why. With so many virtual reality options hitting the shelves over the past couple of years, choosing a decent VR option can actually be a somewhat daunting task.

Samsung has been dominating the middle ground of VR for a while now. There are many worse options available than the Samsung Gear VR, but there aren’t many that are better. To purchase the best of anything usually requires a large investment, which is why the Samsung Gear VR is such a popular choice for those that want a decent VR headset, but don’t want to break the bank. As far as getting as much bang for your buck possible (and hey, this is a porn focused review after all…), then the Gear VR comes out on top.

For those unaware of the mobile VR phenomenon, the Samsung Gear VR is a headset that transforms your Android phone into a fully functioning virtual reality experience. Well-crafted spring loaded tabs at the front, securely hold your phone in place. You can then adjust the focus by turning the dials at the top. This pushes your phone either forwards or backward. One of the main drawbacks of using the VR Gear, over the industry-leading models like the Oculus Rift, or HTC Vive, is that you are unable to bring the image into perfect focus. On the other hand, the Rift and Vive are over three times the price.

A Micro USB has been placed on the underside of the headset, allowing your phone to be run off the headset at the same time as your VR session. Probably to reduce heat, the battery will not get charged up, though. Inside the headset, there is a sensor to detect whether you’re wearing it or not. When the headset assumes that it isn’t being used, it’ll make your phone go into idle mode and will start to charge. The straps are all easily adjustable, as well as comfortable, and the face pad doesn’t cause any discomfort.

Is virtual reality porn even worth it?

At first glance, having the capability of being immersed in a virtual reality porn scene seems like the perfect use for this technology. However, is it all refined enough to be worth it?

The first thing to remember about watching pornography using a VR headset is that it is completely incomparable to regular porn watching. A VR video is an entirely immersive experience and from your point of view. This means you won’t be watching the action from a distance. Due to this, you won’t have very good spatial awareness, as you won’t be able to keep an eye on your surroundings.

We have all heard stories of unfortunate people getting caught watching porn, but at least they were able to have their eyes and ears on guard for them. Being immersed in a VR video, with headphones, will make you easy to sneak up on. If you’re planning on watching a virtual video, make sure you take extra care in ensuring that nobody else is around and that doors are locked.

Tricking your brain into believing that these VR scenes are real can seriously increase your senses to a new level. Most videos have at least a 180-degree viewpoint, meaning you can fully look left or right, but the best experiences come from 360-degree videos. In fact, some people struggle to watch a lot of VR porn as it always seems too real for them. While we don’t see that as a bad thing, everyone has their preferences.

If after reading everything above you haven’t made up your mind whether it is worth it or not then consider this; if watching porn requires a bit of planning due to secrecy, then this might not be for you. Again, the immersive nature of watching virtual reality will not able you to be aware of your surroundings.

If, however, not seeing what’s happening around you doesn’t affect you at all, then using a VR headset really is the pinnacle of adult entertainment. Adult VR is still in its infancy, and it can only get better. The more popular it gets, the better equipment and videos we’ll be allowed access to.

Whether you’re deciding to get one due to getting bored of regular porn or to help spice things up in the bedroom with your partner, then you can’t go wrong with VR.

It’s more fun with friends

VR porn, just like regular porn, does not have to be a solo experience. If your partner, or partners, would be interested in this sort of thing, then you can definitely make this a team activity.

One way of doing it is to have your partner mimic the actions that are happening in the video. This can be a bit tricky, but if you manage to sync up and pull it off, then that’ll help spice things up for sure.

Also, believe it or not, there are accessories that work with the headsets. These VR sex toys that are available, link up via Bluetooth. These devices can really make the VR session intense and are the best way of making the session as enjoyable, and realistic, as possible.

What are the best apps for the Gear VR

You’ve made the best decision of your life and have gone out and bought a Samsung Gear VR. That’s great, good on ya, but to access the vast world of VR porn isn’t as easy as just booting up your headset.

The Oculus and Google store has certain policies concerning adult content. Although there are apps available that are definitely not for children, there has been no porn-related apps allowed on either of these stores.

To get around this, you should go visit the Google Play Store and grab Sideloader VR. This neat app will allow you access to non-Oculus certified apps. Sideloader VR has its own app store, which is where you’ll find VRtube.xxx. This is a live cam app that will let you, in real time, speak to women. At the time of writing, this is the only adult app that’s available on Sideloader VR.

MiKandi is another, more popular way of getting Samsung Gear Virtual Reality porn. The diversity of apps is astonishing, and with over 7000 apps, there’s enough to satisfy everyone’s taste. The VR apps come in three different types: regular simulators, 360-degree photos, and video.

Badoink is another great service that’s incredibly popular. The content is viewed and accessed straight from their website. They offer, like MiKandi’s content, all styles of VR media, including 360-degree videos.

The app, Sex like Real, is probably the best out of them all, though. It doesn’t just have a great range of high-quality content, but it has the easiest process for browsing and accessing the porn you wish to watch.

How to watch porn on the Samsung Gear VR

After you’ve chosen and decided which porn apps you want to download, the next step is to actually load them up. Each experience, depending on the developer used, can vary considerably. Some problems can pop up too, like getting the video to loads correctly. However, generally speaking, these apps as a whole are not difficult to use.

The app categories are as follows: full-blown simulations, videos of real people and photos. It’s also worth remembering that the end result of every app can vary considerably. Some can just be strip teases, without going any further, while others are full-blown sex simulators, that put you in the first person view of either the man or the woman.

The full simulation experiences are definitely the most popular category of these porn apps, and with good reason too. This will be the most immersive experience that you’ll encounter using your Gear VR headset and is something that those who don’t have any VR capabilities, will never be able to experience. The ability to be able to experience something completely different, from the comfort of our own home, has been the dream of many for years. The second most popular category is VR videos. These are generally split down into either: live chats or regular porn videos.

The unique experience of watching porn through your Samsung Gear VR headset can take a little while to get used to. It’s certainly more intense and more realistic than any other non-adult VR option available. It’s worth having a browse and to check out as many different apps and videos as possible, as some have had a lot more production put into them than others. This genre of pornography is still fairly new, so companies are still testing the waters on this niche. The porn industry is one of the biggest industries in the world, so we are sure there will be even great productions coming to our VR app libraries in the near future.

How can I hide my porn on my Samsung Gear VR?

Virtual reality is still a very uncommon hardware option, that as soon as people hear that you own one, they’ll likely want to come over and test it out for themselves, especially with all the great things you’ll be saying about it. It would be a bit embarrassing if your aunt, when looking through the headset for the first time, accidentally opened up your media viewer with “360-PoV slut threesome” as the first thing to greet her.

Luckily, there’s a way to hide it from prying eyes:

  • Open up the “My Files” application on your Android.
  • Now click on “Device Storage” on the interface.
  • You should see folders named, “MilkVR” and “Oculus”. If you don’t, go ahead and create these two folders by clicking “More”, then “Create Folder”.
  • Click on the “Oculus” folder and you should see a folder named “Oculus360Videos”. If you don’t, go ahead and create this one too.
  • Make sure your VR porn videos are inside this folder and select “Rename”, for both. You then instert a period infront of both of the folder names, like “.Oculus360videos”, and save.  Doing so will make the folders hidden.
  • To unhide these folders, go to “My Files” again and press “More” and you’ll see an option that says “Show hidden files”. This will let you rename the folders back to their original names, without the period infront.

Is the Samsung Gear VR worth using for porn?

Again, although the Gear isn’t a top of the range VR option, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what it can do. What makes this option a great one, over the Vive and Oculus, is that the Gear is completely wireless. No cables are needed as you’re literally slotting your phone in front of your face. It’s best to plug in headphones, but even that is only connected to your headset, and won’t get in the way of… other activities. Battery life isn’t something to be worried about either.

The screen’s pixel density is unmistakably passable for a decent VR experience, but it could be better. It will take a small portion of the immersion away, but at the price that it is, that’s a reasonable compromise. Samsung, again to help keep the Gear a mid-range product and reduce the cost, have opted for a cheap plastic on the headset. Although it doesn’t necessarily affect the quality of the product, it does look and feel cheap. A plus side to this is that it’s actually quite light, in comparison to others on the market.

What we can say for certain is, if you don’t want the hassle of using a VR headset with a PC, and you’re looking for an easy to use headset to watch reality VR porn with on your phone, then the Samsung Gear VR will not disappoint.
